A-list guests like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Jessica Alba and Kanye West hit the VIP area of Fendi's newly redecorated Avenue Montaigne atelier to hear beehived chanteuse Amy Winehouse perform at the week's chicest soiree. The revelry lasted long enough to warrant a mid-bash wardrobe change for the sisters Olsen, and though host Karl Lagerfeld's iconic shades stayed firmly in place, the party reached a fever pitch when champagne glasses crashed to the ground and fans stormed the dance floor. Vive la Fendi!

Hollywood may have crossed the pond for England in honor of the Orange British Academy Film Awards, but the weather was far from California sunny. Stars like Jessica Biel-in a dramatic Dior by John Galliano gown and more than $700,000 in Cartier diamonds-braved icy temperatures to show off their red-carpet finest as they arrived at London's Royal Opera House for the annual event. But while Keira Knightley declared the night to be "freezing," Tilda Swinton felt the warmth radiating from the crowd of onlookers who hoped to catch a glimpse of their favorite actors. "The fans are hot!" Swinton declared. "It's so much fun out here, I don't want to go in!"
